Sunset at Hearst Castle
We started off the day in Santa Barbara in true Candace and Andi road trip fashion with a breakfast of McDonalds and Starbucks. After that, we headed up the coast in anticipation of our first time at Hearst Castle.
We first made a quick stop in Pismo beach and were blessed with perfect overcast lighting. If I could choose any lighting to shoot in forever, it would definitely be overcast. Maybe that explains why I want to move to Portland so bad.
I also couldn't head up the coast and not make a stop at my favorite elephant seals. Sadly, there weren't too many this time of year, but just a small glimpse made me so happy.
Hearst Castle was everything I expected and more. We wandered around the premises taking photos as the last light of the day touched the central California coast.
Pro tip: keep the friends around that make sure to schedule your tour at Hearst Castle during sunset because they know it is the best time for lighting.
